Even though I’m a cat lover and have one sitting on my computer as I write this, I still think they have a vicious streak when it comes to little meeces.

Ever see the Incredible Shrinking Man? He ends up living in a dollhouse and one of the scariest moments is when the housecat goes after him.

Looks more like a vole to me ... short tail. My kitty, KC, used to bring home barn rats half his size, and he could sling them into the air to play with the carcass.

(Reuters) - Putting animal rights over fashion and its own vibrant shopping scene, West Hollywood’s leaders voted to approve on Tuesday a first-in-the-nation ban on the sale of fur clothing within city limits.

next will be bans on sales of meat in grocery stores.

My indoor girl-kitty likes to look out the window at the various city wildlife. Her tail twitches and her butt wiggles as she imagines (I suppose) how great it would be to kill that bird or squirrel. But the most excited I ever saw her was when there was a mousie on the patio. I thought she was going to smash the glass. She had this look on her fuzzy face like, “THIS IS WHY I WAS BORN!!”

You mean like this?

(Email starts) Note To All Hunters: This is from a San Francisco newspaper:

(I tried to save pic - wouldn’t work but it is a cutout of a newspaper on the email sent to me, it was from some editorial section called “Speak out”)

“To all you hunters who kill animals for Food, SHAME ON YOU! You ought to go to the store and buy the meat that was made there, where no animals were harmed.

Folks, just remember as you read this, this person probably drives, votes AND, may have already reproduced. God help America .

This also explains how Obama got elected... (Email ends)
